From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

Despite two weeks of intense activity with unusual weather, including heat, rain, hail, and even pestilence (midges), Beth remained in good spirits through our last day on June 11.

While we were at Vindolanda, some feathered friends built nest near the entrance of the men's room at the Visotor Center. Watching the parents feed the little ones as they developed into fledgings was like having our own private "Springwatch."
